Meet CQSO's Camp Director


Laura joined the CQ family as a companion in the summer of 2012, after meeting a fellow volunteer during her third year at the University of Guelph. Since then, she has completed her Masters in Medical Science and uses her skills everyday as a research assistant in Paediatrics at McMaster University. Her favourite thing about camp is the family environment and watching the kids come to camp full of excitement and spirit, ready to tackle any adventures the week has in store for them. She is looking forward to working with her amazing COC team to continue to make CQ Southern Ontario a place for kids to experience new opportunities, have fun and build lifelong friendships and memories! Laura is currently attending McMaster University in an accelerated program to become a Registered Nurse.

Camp Quality Southern Ontario is made possible by a year-round team of volunteers, that plan programs, raise funds, train volunteers and deliver programs. To contact select members of our team, click the orange names below.
